Close to many sites. They have a parking garage just across the street and some on street parking that is free after 8pm. Hotel has own Valet too. Rooms are spacious suites and well appointed. Breakfast as always wonderful at the Embassy Suites.

Hotel is old and shows a lot of wear. I had intermittent room service. Pool broke, sub par evening reception food. Breakfast was ok. Staff didn't acknowledge guests. With so many other options in this area I would avoid this one.
